Evelyn's Coffee Bar, Banff
Yes, the shop name is Evelyn's Coffee Bar though the board says Evelyn's Coffee World
As I mentioned in [this post], I've been looking for a pecan tart for about a year in Banff. I've visited few coffee shops and bakeries around Banff in hope that I can find one but to no avil. Evelyn's Coffee Bar was one of the shops that I visited at that time. Evelyn's Coffee Bar does not carry pecan tart but they do have pecan pie in their menu. I was not in a mood of pie at that time, so I just walked away from the shop.
However, I decided to give their pecan pie a try recently. So, off I went to the shop to get my fix of pecan pie. Surprisingly, if I recalled it correctly, the shop has changed so much since my last visit! I love the shop's current aesthetics.
I really love the vibe of this shop!
Anyway, Evelyn's Coffee Bar offers a wide range of food and drink options; be it coffees, teas, other drinks, desserts, and sandwiches. They also sell coffee beans, boxed teas, and various merchandises like t-shirt and coffee. Not sure about the prices though.
This was my second time eating the pecan pie actually. The first time I bought the pecan pie, it was for to go. I loved it so much that I decided to try again only this time I wanted to eat it at the shop. I ordered Iced Orange Pekoe Tea as a accompaniment for my Pecan Pie because they don't offer free water.
Iced Orange Pekoe Tea & Pecan Pie
I don't remember the exact prices for each of them but the bill was CAD 10.08 (after taxes)
Unfortunately, I didn't like both my Iced Orange Pekoe Tea and Pecan Pie this time. The tea was too bitter for my liking though I have asked the employee to make it sweet. However, I was grateful to the employee for allowing me to make the Orange Pekoe Tea iced though they don't usually sell it iced.
As for the Pecan Pie, it was quite mushy for my liking. Maybe because the employee warmed the pie before serving it to me. Thank god I didn't see yes when the employee asked me if I want whipped cream on top of my pie. I think I will hate it more if I had whipped cream on top of my pie. I guess I loved the Pecan Pie when I bought it for to go because I ate it as it is, without warming the pie.
I definitely wouldn't mind to come again for the Pecan Pie because I know it actually tastes good. Though I doubt that I'll come anytime soon because I feel like I had enough of anything pecan and the price is actually quite high? This girl gotta save more money T^T
